Ahhhh, the Dark and Stormy. That unmistakable sweetness that only Gosling's Black Seal can provide, mixed with the bite of ginger beer. It's the perfect anytime drink despite its reputation for being "tropical," I've had a DnS with eggs for brunch and at closing time alike, and it's good every time. One of the best Dark and Stormies you can find in the city is Riverside's neighborhood favorite Captain Larry's. Formerly owned by a City Police officer (Captain Larry), now-owner Ivars Balodis and company have kept Larry's fascination with Gosling's alive.

I believe it was Edgar Allan Poe who once mused, "The happiest day -- the happiest hour/ My sear'd and blighted heart hath known … is sipping liquor from a copper mug. " All right, maybe I'm winging it there just a little, but that line is the inspiration behind a quiet little bar that opened up inside the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront a few months ago: Apropoe's. Could there be a more aptly named tribute to our adopted son than that? Witty, they certainly are. But what really sets this hotel bar apart is the quality of ingredients and the nice selection of craft cocktails on menu.

Ah, the Mule. The Buck. A magical combination of liquor and ginger - be it in ale or beer form - and a dose of citrus, creating one of Earth's finest and simplest delights. Every bar has it on their cocktail menu (and if they don't they certainly should) and most of them are pretty good, but we're always on the lookout for those common cocktails that are elevated above the rest. That cocktail is the Whiskey Ginger at Beatnik Bar. What elevates this particular common cocktail above the others?

Richard Gorelick seems content to let a hundred black-eyed Susans bloom with recipes featuring the likes of ginger beer, Fernet Branca and elderflower liqueur ( "New life for black-eyed Susan drink at Preakness," May 12). I say save your exotics for the betting window. Come post time on Preakness Day, pop open a Maryland brew or a Natty Boh if you must. Then put some ice in an Old-Fashioned glass and top with a generous pour of good rye. If it needs a name, call it a Lazy Susan.

There's little left to be said that hasn't been done so by countless food reviewers, television personalities and locavores alike when it comes to Woodberry Kitchen 's much lauded farm-to-table cuisine. Its reputation precedes itself. But having said that, the cocktail menu - which is just as top notch as the food menu in a lot of ways - deserves a great deal of credit at the hands of bar manager Corey Polyoka. The alcoholic creations put together by Polyoka are seasonally inspired, fresh, locally sourced and above all else extremely tasty.

It's a long way from a Sazerac to a tropitini, but the trip says a lot about the evolution of cocktails throughout American history. The Sazerac dates from the 1790s in New Orleans and is often said to have been the world's first cocktail. The tropitini is a product of the new millennium -- a concoction made possible by the flavors that now infuse spirits like vodka and rum. In between came a lot of other drinks. Many of them, such as the Tom Collins, the Bloody Mary or the sidecar, are still cocktail standards.

Before its 15 minutes of fame, J.A. Murphy's was a fun, occasionally rowdy but unremarkable Fells Point bar. It was the type of place you stopped by for a quick beer during a pub crawl, but usually left before a second round. In August, J.A. Murphy's made it to cable TV for all of the wrong reasons. It was the subject of "Bar Rescue," a makeover reality show on Spike TV hosted by industry expert Jon Taffer. The show painted the owners - old fraternity brothers Keith Murphy and Joel Gallant - as clueless managers who allowed their bar to erode.

Some people shudder at the thought of a "theme restaurant" — especially when that theme involves pirates. But with a gleaming, wood-lined interior, top-notch food and friendly service, Mutiny Pirate Bar in Glen Burnie is much better than it sounds on paper. A few years ago, Rob and Steve Wecker, the brothers behind Columbia's Iron Bridge Wine Company, along with friend Nate Hynson, got the urge to go marauding. Steve said he noticed that, "people are rooting for the pirates now. " When they found an empty building in a residential neighborhood near Marley Creek, they knew they'd have a great fit. From the outside, the bright blue building is just on the nice side of ramshackle.

Unlike ginger ale, its mainstream cousin, ginger beer attracts a more selective audience. With less sugar to soften its distinctive bite, ginger beer can present a challenge to the palate. Kids who revel in root beer can find themselves with watery eyes if they take a big swig of ginger beer without anticipating the pungent zing. There are plenty of good ginger beers on the market -- among them Reed's Extra Ginger Brew Ginger Beer, not to be confused with Reed's Original Ginger Brew Ginger Ale, which has much less of a bite than the ginger beer.
